UGANDA AIRLINES TO BEGIN FLIGHT TO LAGOS & POSSIBLY ABUJA
In a move to strengthen the bilateral relationship between Uganda and Nigeria, the two countries have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for direct flights between Entebbe and Lagos, with the possibility of Abuja being added as an additional route.
the two countries have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to commence direct flights between Entebbe and Lagos, as well as Abuja. This comes after the successful discussions between the Ugandan Foreign Affairs Minister, Gen Jeje Odongo and Nigeria’s Minister for Aviation, Hadi Sirika, in Kampala.
The agreement, which is part of the Bilateral Air Service Agreement (BASA) between the two countries, provides for reciprocal international commercial air transport services. The BASA, initially signed in 2002 and reviewed in 2005, has been revised to facilitate direct air connectivity between the two nations.
